Blow Football! :D

I used to play this with my Dad and I'd forgotten how much fun it is!! I dreamed about playing blow football with the kids last night and so meant to show them how to play today!! Our friend Marsha came over to watch the kiddoes earlier and she taught us how to make inflatable boxes ( or balls... ) from Origami paper! Finally about an hour ago, I twigged!! I grabbed a box ( or ball..!) and a tinker toy tube ( or straw! ) and yelled "BLOW FOOTBALL!!!" the kids must think I'm nuts! Anyway, they are busy playing away now, on top of the ottoman! I'll take a pic and share it.... hang on........



 


The only problem is, you have to watch the dog....!! ;D Not one moment after I'd taken this picture the dog leaped up and snatched the ball!! :D Ahem!! :D

 


You don't have to make fancy inflatable boxes (or balls..!) any balled up piece of paper will do!!! Cheap and easy entertainment for the whole family... including the dog!! ;D

It looks like fun! We've done it in restaurants to pass the time but then the kids get too enthusiastic and we have to shush 'em up! ;) I'll have to suggest it when we find the dining room table. ;)

Oh my I remember that too! Do you remember Zxylophones? The Rolf Harris ones? I just thought of those out of the blue last week......

I got one for Christmas once and LOVED it......
